uncertainty principle



because in this universe we are always

moving. father returns with peace in his


footsteps as though the clouds didn’t just

cry on his shoulders. brother talks about


his castle, his home; of the school & hospital

he built & how he turned his hometown into


tunnels where wishes are birthed. i write self

into a poem of vague meanings: boy with


camera, muse, guilt & some stolen dreams

from a mother who opens up with tears


every day she relives her childhood. because

in this universe we are never static. from the


mirror where we worked in a white hall,

choking with ties & white gowns; from


the road side in boots and protective coats,

helmet worn over heads. because in this


universe we can’t tell simultaneously where

we are & where we are headed to.
